This is to remind you that the Institute, except for the Library, will be closed for All Saints’ / All Souls’ Day on Wednesday 1 November and on Thursday 2 November.

PLEASE NOTE: on 1 and 2 November the Library will be open for EUI members only.

During the closure EUI members will be able to access all EUI buildings (including the internal car parks) using their EUI ID card.

Please take note of the following:

  • Doors are alarmed;
  • Doors fitted with access control have no handles and can therefore be opened only by swiping your EUI ID card in the reader when entering or leaving through these access points;
  • Anti-panic doors are alarmed and therefore, to avoid sounding the alarm, you must swipe your EUI ID card in the reader when entering or leaving through these access points.
  • Off-hours access gates might differ from daytime and/or working days; detailed maps with highlighted access points are available at the following links:
